Le Pech Abusé
Besides its bright ruby color, it offers expressive aromas of blueberry, blackberry and black fruit mingled with earthy, smoky and mineral notes. The palate is rich, generous, ripe and super juicy. The nose has similar flavors with oak ageing nuances, enhanced by good acidity and integrated tannins. The finish is quite soft, rounded and really ripe but not overripe or stewed.

Domaine du Pech is a Biodynamic estate vineyard and winery in the Buzet region of South West France. Its vines surround the winery on a hill or ‘pech’ in local dialect.
Domaine du Pech is situated on the slopes of Sainte-Colombe-en-Bruilhois in the extreme south east of the appellation. The white gravels have excellent drainage and the consequent reflection of light and accumulation of heat ensures optimal maturity for the grapes.
No fertilizers have been used for twenty years. Since 2000 yields have been significantly reduced and since 2004 the drive towards biodynamic methods of cultivation has included the use of medicinal plants as well as minerals, thereby necessitating minimal treatments with copper or use of sulphur. Only natural yeasts and bacteria are used and the wines are bottled without filtration. Daniel Tissot, son of long-standing winemaking family in Jura, has been making wine and winning medals in the Côtes de Buzet since 1980. In 1997 the estate was taken over by his daughter Magali and her partner Ludovic.
